The list of camomile tea benefits seems to go on and on... This centuries-old medicinal 'cure-all' herbal tea is brimming with countless health, cosmetic, and nutritional benefits!
From encouraging a peaceful night's sleep (with no nightmares) to easing anxiety to soothing a dry, flaky scalp, this tea has an impressive litany of health benefits.
Here are more of the many ways camomile herbal tea benefits our health and wellness.
Camomile tea is a very rich source of antioxidants, and these antioxidants provide so many benefits for health!
Not only can antioxidants help fight inflammation and help to protect us against chronic disease (such as cancer, heart disease, and rheumatoid arthritis), but they work to slow the aging process and reverse the visible signs of aging (like wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity), as well.
Camomile's reputation in traditional medicine as an effective treatment for inflammation has been supported by modern-day research.
Consider steeping and enjoying a cup of camomile tea to soothe the pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis, relieve hay fever, reduce and soothe painful hemorrhoids, ease inflammatory bowel disease (such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis), and help to manage other chronic inflammatory conditions.
However much you enjoy a delicious, aromatic pot of camomile tisane, don't underestimate camomile tea's topical benefits in easing inflammation, too! Learn more here about topical use of camomile tea.
Drinking a cup of camomile tea (or simply gargling with cooled camomile tea) can encourage healing of and bring soothing relief to painful gums, gingivitis, canker sores, and toothaches.

Not only will this tea nurture your physical health, but it will support you emotionally and can even provide topical and cosmetic benefits!
This cure-all herbal tisane is a must-have for any tea stash.
